CSI 139 - Manor House Creations

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing this week's case file #139 for Color Stories Inspiration using gorgeous flowers from Manor House Creations.

This week's case file is teamed with a fabulous sketch by Emma Stafrace.

Testimony: Document something special about pets or animals.
Journaling on back - My little shadow Millie.  She loves to snuggle and this is her favourite spot - the blankie on our sofa.  When I am sitting on the sofa, she comes up to me and just waits until I fluff up the throw and say "Come on, up you come, here's your blankie."  Millie of course jumps up and immediately snuggles into her blankie, purring loudly and in total bliss.  She likes it even more if I have the blankie right up close to me.  I love hearing her purr and feeling the vibrations against my body.  It's very soothing and comforting.  Love my little fur-baby.

Love the denim rosettes.  They come in light, dark and floral as well as mixed packs.  Here I altered the light denim rosette by lightly swiping with gesso and adding a brad to the centre.

The lemon country roses team beautifully with the sweet floral patterned flower from the Oh So Pretty- blue mix flower pack.
